Actress Nina Dobrev attended the annual Vanity Fair Oscar Party in Beverly Hills, California on Sunday, February 22nd. Taking place directly after the Academy Awards, this highly anticipated event brings even more of tinseltown's finest to the red carpet, giving us even more hair, beauty, and style inspiration from our favorite celebs!
Lady in red
Nina attended the event in a form-fitting floor-length red gown with elaborate embroidery around the mid-section and sleeves, and on-trend side cut outs exposing her trim waist. She pulled the look together with gold accessories, including glittery gold tips on her nails (a look we've seen her wear many times). Nina's dark smoky eye was the perfect makeup choice to complement her bold ensemble.
If ever you need a polished look that's versatile and easy to achieve- this is the one! So, ready to recreate it for yourself?
Get the Look
Unify your complexion and mask any imperfections with a medium-coverage foundation. Apply the product directly to the back of your hand and then use a beauty sponge to smooth it over your face for a natural finish.
Apply eyeshadow primer all over your lids and along the lower lashlines.
Apply a champagne colored shadow to the inner corners of your eyes, and then use a pencil like Smokissime to apply black eyeliner around your eye, focusing on the outer two-thirds. Use the attached sponge to buff the product out.
Use a kohl pencil to define the outer two-thirds of the eye and add extra drama. Then, apply a highlighter pencil on the waterline to create a "wide eyed" appearance. Finish the eye makeup with two coats of black mascara.
Add a slick of nude lipstick to your lips and you're all set!
